Hello all,

Thanks to all who attended the Jack Dennis presentation last month. Jack's always entertaining, and anyone who was there walked away with a better understanding of European Nymphing. We'll be hearing a lot more about it in the years to come.

For quite some time, we've been working at developing a good entomology class for the fly fisherman, and it is finally coming to fruition. We're partnering with the Butterfly Pavilion, located in Westminster, CO, to bring you a comprehensive look at the insect world and how it pertains to our sport. See below for more information, and to reserve your spot.

Hope to see you,
Bill
